The Company

Currently in our 34th year in business, ICI is a family-owned company in its second generation of leadership. Since 1982, we have completed award-winning projects through general contracting, construction management and design/build project delivery.

Our clients represent a variety of industries: education, retail and automotive to name a few; yet their construction needs are essentially the same – the delivery of high-quality spaces on time and within their budget. ICI not only meets our clients’ expectations, we exceed them. The proof: more than 80% of our projects are generated by repeat clients and referrals. Clients continually turn to ICI for their construction needs because of our performance history and strong project delivery.

The People

Each member of our staff fulfills an essential role within the company. As such, our team has been carefully assembled throughout the years and the formula has proven successful; the average length of time an ICI employee has been working at the company is nearly 10 years.

In addition to bachelor and master’s degrees in construction management, architecture and civil engineering, members of our skilled team hold many respected industry-specific accreditations and professional certifications. ICI employs 2 of only 26 Certified Professional Estimators (CPE) in the state of Illinois, 9 LEED Accredited Professionals, 1 Certified Professional Constructor (CPC), 16 SWPPP (Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan) Certified Staff members and 1 Certified Preparer of SWPPP (CPSWPPP).

Safety

Safety is a core value at ICI. We cultivate a culture that emphasizes safety above all else. Our commitment to safety begins at the top with our executive leadership and our success is the result of daily attention to detail by every employee on every project.

The History

International Contractors, Inc. was founded in 1982 by Richard Bronge and his eldest son, Randall. Two years later Richard’s middle son Bruce joined the business, followed by his youngest son Jeff in 1991.

For the first several years, the firm focused on hard bid general contracting. As time passed and the firm grew, there was a gradual shift towards the relationship-based business the firm remains today. Because of this relationship-based approach to construction, several of ICI’s first clients from the early 1980s remain clients today.
